Ash – Year 1 & Year 2
Autumn 2019 curriculum map
Welcome to Ash Class
Welcome to Ash Class where learning is fun and we all work as a team.
Our teachers are Mrs Wheatley (Mondays-Thursdays) and Mrs Manning on Fridays. We are helped by our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Sullivan and Mrs Penny.
We like to learn through topic work. This way we find out about things through lots of different subjects. For example, our literacy lessons might also include history, geography, music, drama or art. We also enjoy outdoor learning and finding out about the environment around us.
We have P.E. lessons on Monday afternoons taught by Ross Kitteridge and Aaron Cameron-Prior, our professional coaches and on Wednesday mornings. Full PE kit will be needed. No ear-rings are permitted, so it is best not to wear them at all on these days.
We read in a group with the teacher every week and enjoy a class book together. Spellings are taught and tested on a Wednesday, and reinforced throughout the week through phonics, word and sentence work as well as handwriting.
We like to develop our art skills by linking our work to the topics we are covering. Each year we have participated in the National Gallery 'Take One Picture' programme and we have successfully had our work exhibited on five occasions.
